Mission Opportunity in Chicago
Take part in an Urban Mission Experience
Looking for something to do over winter break?
The Board of World Mission invites high school and college aged youth to take part in an urban immersion experience. The group will stay in a mission house on the campus of Chicago’s Lutheran School of Theology. Two days of volunteering with local organizations will give a chance for participants to learn about the ways poverty and inequality uniquely manifest themselves in urban settings.
Sunday, December 28: Arrive Chicago late afternoon / early evening for team building and orientation
Monday, December 29: Serve at local ministry or social service sight
Tuesday, December 30: Serve at local ministry or social service sight
Wednesday, December 31: Final wrap up and head home
This experience is geared towards high school and college aged youth. (Future opportunities in this location will be available for older individuals. If you have a group interested in a mission experience in Chicago, please contact Justin and we can begin to work on dates.)
This experience has limited availability, and we requested interested individuals (even preliminarily interested) be in contact as soon as possible!
The experience will cost participants $125. This includes all housing, food and transportation once participants arrive in Chicago.
Please consider this opportunity!
If you have interest in the trip, email Justin Rabbach at firstname.lastname@example.org or send him a message on Facebook. Please read the additional details below.
